GIG OF THE WEEK
Celebrating SA’s moms
Eastgate on Mother’s Day
Sunday marks the day set aside |to give your mother a break and celebrate her love. Some loved ones will cook for her, others will buy presents, but if you are unsure what to do for your mom, we might have just the solution for you.
Enter Arno Carstens, who will perform at the Eastgate Piazza on Sunday from 12.30pm to 1.15pm.
He’ll entertain the families who’ll be treating their mothers to lunch at one of the restaurants on the square. What better way to make your gift even more special than have Arno play some mellow tunes? If mom doesn’t cry here, then she’s one tough nut to crack.
Carstens is the former lead singer of The Springbok Nude Girls and one of the country’s |most successful solo rock artists, enjoying considerable success over the years. He has nine studio albums to his name with a soon-to- be-released album on the way. Apart from owning five Samas, Carstens has enjoyed 20 Top 10 singles so far.
To make the experience even more entertaining, Eastgate is holding a Happiness Is… Mom competition. Families stand a chance to win for mom one of two Orogold hampers worth R25 000 each, or a Herstyler hamper worth R10 000. All you need to do to qualify is write in 200 words or less why your mom makes you happy. Easy, right? For more info, and to download the entry form, see www.eastgate-shops.co.za
When it comes to food choices, the Eastgate piazza is home to great restaurants and enough options to meet any mom’s |tastes. If she is into international cuisine, then lead her to Mantovani’s. And if she is a seafood disciple, bring the |Cape to her by going to the |Cape Town Fish Market.
There is also the Piatto Mediterranean kitchen, where the best Italian, Greek and Portuguese dishes are served. Smith & Wollensky is the traditional family steakhouse, your meat done to your requirements.
Then there is Plaka, which is |a landmark venue in the city because of its hearty Greek dishes. – Munyaradzi Vomo
